Artwork and packaging Edit
There are two versions of the cover: the main cover is a painting by visual artist Eric White and the alternative cover, in the style of a cassette tape, was done by Tyler himself.
Tyler got in touch with White in late 2016, after seeing White's work in his self-titled art book. The two had mutual admiration for each others' work; White was very impressed with Tyler's drawings and stated he had a natural sense of color after seeing his sketchbook. Tyler presented his ideas to White – he knew from the get-go he wanted a bee, his car and flowers in it – and White created compositions based on that.Below is the booklet for Flower Boy. The published and final version differs from a version published by Tyler on Twitter. As explained in the foldout, Petra Collins took photos with Tyler for the booklet, but they could not be used, so many photographs were omitted or replaced with a different design. Also, some song titles and lyrics are slightly different. A 2010 photo by finnish photographer Sofia Okkonen is used on the page for "See You Again".
